Analytics IQ Certification -Expiration

I have to retake the IQ exam in about 2 days...I believe I can pass it, but would like to spend a bit more time study...There's so much to learn and I'm building a site and apply my Analytics training to help me create a successful business...Now I say all that to say, I'd rather keep building my site and take the exam in about a month...

 

Will I still be able to call myself a "partner"?...Do you have to pass the IQ to be partner?...I hope this makes sense...Any hoo, all the best and thanks in advance for your answers.

Hello @Adrienne W,

I would say pause your building and dive into the test, you can have it done in an hour and move back into your design. Lets see what others say, but if it were me, I would just test to ensure certification stays in place.

As far as partners, check out The Partner badge to learn more about the Partner title and how to get and keep status. 

Hope this helps!

Hi,

 

I agree with Spencer and would only add that the Google Analytics IQ (GAIQ) exam is a not a requirement of being a badged Google Partner. AdWords is but Analytics is not... although I can't image not being certified in Analytics with the work we all do. 

 

Happy coding... and happy testing. Smiley Happy

 

Cheers,

 

James

Had to fill you in Spencer...I feel like you were a major source of encouragement for me...Just passed the certification...I got 60 out of 70...It's a good thing...I did notice that my certification expires in 12 months, not 1.5 years...Is this new?  Any hoo, thanks for the encouragement...All the best to you!

Awesome... Thanks for rounding back with the update! You PASSED! Nice work! @Adrienne W

The Help File ShowsKeeping your individual qualification current: To keep your individual qualification current, you'll need to successfully pass the assessment every 18 months.

I will update my Analytics test this week and report back on if I see the 18 months or the 12 that you are seeing. I will update afterwords! 

Congrats again on getting things done!

All the best to you on the test...Look forward to seeing if you have to renew in a year...or is it still 18 months.

 

P.S.:  Mr. Clemens, I think you kindly as well...Your input was help and much appreciated!
